Það sem mér líkaði og líkaði ekki við bókina:

-Yanis Varoufakis útskýrir á mannamáli heilan helling af hagfræðikenningum.

-Bókin er væmin, oft skrifuð þannig að lesandinn er settur í hlutverk dóttur Yanis. Truflaði mig frekar mikið.
-Ég átti erfitt með að skilja fyrir hvern bókin nákvæmlega er. Lesendur Yanis eru líklegir til að vera áhugafólk um hagfræði og stjórnmá

Let me begin with a confession: I am a Professor of Economics who has never really trained as an economist. While I may have a PhD in Economics, I do not believe I have ever attended more than a few lectures on economics! But let's take things one at a time.

I was born in Athens back in the mists of 1961. Greece was, at the time, struggling to shed the post-civil war veil of totalitar
